Wanstead Flats

A fantastic green open space situated between Forest Gate, Manor Park and Aldersbrook.

Corner Kitchen

Fantastic family orientated cafe serving unique stone baked pizzas, homemade cakes and featuring a basement playground with dedicated activities throughout the week for under 5's. Great place to take babies and toddlers.

A hidden gem in Forest Gate Village overlooking Wanstead Flats, this pub has recently undergone a full refurbishment and has a huge beer garden at the rear.

Authentic Sardinian food. The perfect hidden restaurant - although it recently got 5 stars and a whole page in The Evening Standard so now everyone knows about it!

Golden Grove

Really convenient for work and the service is great too!


Love the coconut-infused southern Indian flavours. Friendliest service and the mixed grills and Dosas are to die for.

The Red Lion

Awesome pub with a beer garden, a great vibe, great people and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. It's also very close to Leytonstone Underground Station.

North Star

Situated in Leytonstone Village near Bushwood, this pub has a food menu with a Thai twist and a beer garden out the back.

"A great place to live. Affordable Victorian properties and Wanstead Flats on your doorstep. Some decent coffee shops opening on Woodgrange Road. Definitely an area on the up!"

May 2013


"Reasonably priced housing in a great location only 13 minutes by train from Liverpool Street. The green spaces of Wanstead Flats are great for running and walking and Stratford for shopping, cinema, restaurants etc. is only a 15 minute walk. The high street is improving slowly and with Crossrail on the way, it can only get better. "
